John Moyle Completes 344 Days On Road22nd February 2000
48 year old Adelaide Ultra-Marathon runner, John Moyle today arrived back in Adelaide, after completing 17, 344km and 344 days on the road.
John was looking extremely fit with not an ounce of fat on him, but road worn. Talking from the steps of the State Parliament he thanked his sponsors, Apex and the Fire Brigade for the help he has had on the trip. John Moyle has been raising money for various childrens projects throughout the trip and raising awareness of Apex around the country.
He was very lucky to have completed the journey after some of the injuries he encountered during the journey. This included suffering minor muscle meltdown in the first week of the journey when he left Darwin.
John Moyle now plans to set up camp at the Adelaide Harriers Track in South Terrace and keep running till he brings up the 19 100km mark.This will beat the tentative World Continuous run Record of 19 030km (277 days) currently held by Gary Parsons of Queensland. Gary finished his run on Jan 25th, so it has certainly been a busy month in Ultra Solo running in Australia.
